Construction Today Highlights Gray Project
Construction Today featured an article on the joint-less flooring system that was used in Siemens Energy, Inc.’s recent wind turbine manufacturing facility, a Gray project, in Hutchinson, Kan. Teqton’s joint-less, maintenance-free flooring system has been a fixture in many European plants. However, the Siemens facility was the first use of it in the U.S. Siemens, Teqton and Gray were awarded the Technical Innovation Award from the Kansas chapter of the American Concrete Institute for their work on the project, completed in 2010. The facility also achieved LEED® Gold Certification and was Siemens’ first LEED® Gold certified production facility in the U.S. Gray provided architecture, engineering and construction management for this project.
Construction Today covers timely issues such as the profound affect construction spending has on the U.S. economy, managing volatile material costs, LEED design and construction, emerging technologies such as BIM and work force retention.
Gray, ranked fourth among the top U.S. green contractors in manufacturing plant construction, currently has several large projects, mostly located across the South, that are underway or recently completed including a Michelin Earthmover tire manufacturing plant in Starr, S.C.; a Caterpillar Inc. manufacturing facility in Winston-Salem, North Carolina; a Caterpillar Inc. manufacturing facility near Athens, Ga.; a Siemens gas turbine plant in Charlotte, North Carolina; a Whirlpool plant in Cleveland, Tenn.; and multiple projects for Austal USA in Mobile, Alabama.
